It’s been only a month since PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds released for the Xbox One’s Game Preview program (which is Microsoft’s version of Early Access). However, it already has more than three million players on the platform. While this is likely the total player count rather than the concurrent player count, it’s still impressive all the same.
The popularity of the Battle Royale title can’t be stated enough. It crossed 3.1 million concurrent players on Steam last week, sold 1 million copies in its first 48 hours on Xbox One and is currently sitting at over 30 million players on both platforms. Despite the Xbox One version’s launch troubles, there have been a number of updates including first person modes for all manner of players.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds still needs to receive other features like the new Miramar map and the recent cosmetic crates added to the rewards pool. Still, you can bet on it only getting bigger in the coming months.
